U.S. Rep Ryan leaves his office on Capitol Hill in Washington

Exclusive: Freedom Caucus of U.S. House envisions honeymoon with Ryan

U.S. Rep Ryan leaves his office on Capitol Hill in WashingtonBy Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Leading hard-line conservatives in the House of Representatives said they could imagine a peaceful honeymoon with Paul Ryan if he becomes speaker of the House, as expected, provided he takes steps they favor to decentralize House power. In a group interview with Reuters, three of the founding members of the House Freedom Caucus said that while they had constantly battled with outgoing Speaker John Boehner, Ryan understands that individual lawmakers need to help develop the legislative agenda. “With that (approach) there would be less conflict, hopefully, because it would be member driven,” said Representative Mark Meadows of North Carolina, a second-term lawmaker and sponsor of a July motion that sought to oust Boehner.
